It's a mistake, he was using the EC2-A earlier in the stream and even showed the boxes.

I'm talking about what Desi was saying over comms.

Desi: "The EC1-SA?"
Tarik: "The EC1 dash A"
Desi: "Oh, you should try the SA"

Kinda made it sound like a new line.

Yeah sounds like a mistake, but who knows, Zowie did just start selling refurb'd/discounted mice for the first time in a long time (first ever for refurbs afaik) so for all we know, they could be trying to sell off the rest of their stock to bring in a new 3360 lineup, but if we go by Zowie's history then they're probably just gonna wait for the 3310 to EOL before putting the 3360 into their mice.

I'd like to think we're going to see 3360's and all across improvements thanks to the BenQ money, that all this quiet time was spent improving everything and the most recent iterations were simply rushed out so they could sell mice with the BenQ name on the side.

We'll probably just get the bare minimum possible though. We need a Noctua or Sennheiser level of quality company making mice so I can have something good.

Didn't sound like an accident, probably a new line being tested by them. I'm still waiting for a retail to hold the EC2 so I can physically hold it and see if it could possibly be better than the eC1 shape for me tongue.gif

Hopefully it is a new line. Don't think replacing the 3310 with the 3360 would be enough to replace the current series. There's a lot of stuff wrong with the EC line-up and it's borderline stealing charging £50 for them.

A lot wrong?? Such as what??

If they fix the scroll wheel as they should, less actuation force on the side buttons, drop the 3360 inside.

Mouse 1&2 improved(some dislike, some love/like them).

What is 'a lot wrong' pertaining to the ec series? The shapes for the series is damn good & it sales like such.

Borderline stealing charging such prices?? SS, Razer, Logitech, ESPECIALLY FINALMOUSE. All of them overcharge.

Apart from the shape, I can't see what else they've done right.

Considering it's a £50 mouse, it has poor side buttons, a poor scroll wheel, meh clicks (would like them to separate M1&2 from shell) which are good for shooters but not so great for casual browsing and probably poor for MOBAs. I really don't like the way they've implemented the 3310 too, I instantly felt a difference between Zowie's 3310 and my QPAD 8K's 3310. The mouse comes with no software too which is a brilliant marketing technique for those with lower-end Razer mice; after experiencing Synapse with my Abyssus I only wanted a mouse with no software, but having experienced mice with decent software I don't see a reason why Zowie don't have their own.

Having said all that, my daily driver's an EC2-A. Shape's the best I've had and it's nothing revolutionary, it is a basic shape and I just feel a bit ripped off paying £50 for it when the only thing it's good at is the shape. I guess it's good for Zowie that the shape just so happens to be the most important feature of a mouse for most gamers.
